book suggestions?

 {Photograph by: A Very Story}

I was hoping for a little help from you all. I am trying to make a little list of great books to read but I need some suggestions. Have you read any great books lately? Do you have a favorite book? I'd love to hear!

  5. If you are into non-fiction, Shattered Dreams by Irene Spencer is one of my favorites. It's the true story of a polygamist's wife living in poverty in Mexico. Definitely not for everyone, but it is so well written and for me it was impossible to put down.

    Love your blog, by the way! Long time reader, first time commenter. Happy reading! :)

  6. Ditto the Hunger Games, Just Kids by Patti Smith, A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness, Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery, A Novel Bookstore by Laurence Cosse . . . I could continue on and on!

  7. I just started reading Born Standing Up (Steve Martin's memoir). It's good so far, and funny, of course.

  8. I love reading, but I usually go book shopping at Powell's once a year then bring the piles back home (Amsterdam) and read them throughout the year. So, I'm not up on the latest picks, but I would suggest The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon, a historical mystery set in post-war Barcelona. Favorite book of last year. Other recommendations are The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery, The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy and anything by Paul Auster or Jane Austen. The Mysterious Benedict Society was also a fun read. Enjoy!
